Carrot Banana Oatmeal Muffins

When ever I hit the grocery store, carrots are always on my ‘items to buy’ list. I absolutely love these vegetables. They are naturally sweet and make excellent stews, soups and cakes!

I had never made carrot cake or muffins before. I baked these muffins recently and was so pleased with the outcome. They are a combination of plain oatmeal, banana, carrots and whole wheat flour, sweetened with Jaggery.

The recipe is very simple and the batter can be prepared within minutes. I used jaggery powder as it adds a lovely aroma and flavor. It also keeps the muffins moist. The result – light, airy and healthy muffins. I added only a quarter cup of jaggery, as I topped the muffins with some icing, which can be really sweet. You can increase the sweetness as per your taste.

These make a good ‘On the go’ breakfast or a tea-time snack. They refrigerate well for about 3 days.

I hope you enjoy making these as much as I did.
